KUKA.Sim / KUKA OLP - DS-SIM Public Tools

If you work with KUKA robots in KUKA.Sim (Add On) or KUKA OLP, this Python add on adds some functions that can make your life easier.

  • Import of $config.dat file properties (Base/Basename, Tool/Toolname, LoadData)

  • Save and load signal connections of a robot (e.g. if you have to manually exchange a robot)

  • Mirror position statements (for mirrored parts etc.)

  • Adapt position statements with a relative offset or absolute values for selectable parameters of the statements (Coordinates, external axis values, …)

To install the add on download the zip file below, then unzip and copy the folder “DS_SIM” to the MyCommands folder of your simulation software. The MyCommands folder should be located in your personal documents folder.
Example: C:\Users%username%\OneDrive - KUKA AG\Dokumente\KUKA\KUKA.Sim 4.3\My Commands

Hi, can you add support for Kuka.Sim 3.1
I am trying to start it there, but it says cant find file named kuka and is not starting.
I need to be able to mirror positions

Hi, There is no plan at the moment to make this compatible with Sim 3.1. The Sim 3.1 programming page is a whole different story and I don’t have any experience how to create motion commands there. As Sim 3.1 is discontinued at this point I will not get into that. You could work with a trial version of Sim 4 or buy Sim 4 at the yearly license is quite affordable.
